Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos: Are you ready to try something new?

I really enjoy a good fish taco. I remember when I first discovered fish tacos. We were on a family vacation to southern California. It was our first time in the Golden State, so I was open to trying something new. The fish was tasty, the avocado fresh, and the sauce just a little spicy. In other words, the fish tacos did not disappoint. Now, don’t get me wrong. I had heard of fish tacos before. It’s just that I had never tried them. Somehow being in a new place made me more willing to try a new food, and it has become one of my favorite dishes.

Maybe this season, as spring turns to summer, you need to try something new. Maybe you can’t go to California for inspiration, but you can go to church. Perhaps you just go on occasion. This summer, why not try something new and go regularly, like every Sunday! Maybe you go to church regularly but aren’t involved in any other way. Try joining a life group or going to a special event. Volunteer to help with hospitality or work with the children. Invite your friends, neighbors, and colleagues to church, so they can try something new with you. It might become their new favorite thing, like those fish tacos did for me.

After all, God loves doing new things. In Isaiah 43:19 God says, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” If you feel like you’ve been in the wilderness or a wasteland, let God do something new in you. Don’t just keep doing what you’ve always done. Try something new! Start reading your Bible for 15 minutes each morning. Begin praying before you eat a meal at work. Memorize a verse of Scripture. Fast for one meal a week. Do something new and perhaps God will do something new in you.

And if you’ve never had a fish taco, what are you waiting for?
